3-foot x 5-foot superknit polyester one-sided flag (design is visible from both sides) with
heading and grommets.

Since the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 506th Infantry Regiment includes infantry troops
along with cavalry, artillery and support troops, it was suggested that the original Currahee Flag

In 2008, working with the Commander of the 4th Brigade, the 506th Association came up with
a new design, which incorporated a modern theme, with elements from WWII and Vietnam.

In 2008-2009, Currahee Battle Flags were presented by the 506th Association to:

In 2010-2011, Currahee Battle Flags were presented by the 506th Association to:

  • The brigade and all battalion headquarters, both in Afghanistan and at Fort Campbell
  • Currahee KIA family members who attended the monthly Eagle Remembrance
    Ceremony at Fort Campbell
  • All Currahee WIA who were visited by 506th Association Representatives in hospitals
